Contest 28 - Snilefisken
« on: 29 May, 2011, 01:50:07 »
Hi list,

I am posting some images of our recently aquired, beautifully red, Contest 28, build no:98. We will give her the name Snilefisken, which are the two words snail and fish put together: a well known, but not very commonly used word combination in Norway. The images are from her old port in Son, Norway, but on thursday we will sail her home to her new home port in Oslo, Norway.

We can hardly wait!!!

Proud "rederinne" flaunting herself in her new boat. (Shipowner is to boring, the norwegian word reder(m)/rederinne(f) is much better!)

Snilefisken in all her might.

Aksel H.

Indeed beautiful red, is that the original gelcoat??? Also nice combination with the white and grey by the way. :D

There are two other clubmembers in Oslo, you can find them on the CYOC site. One of them even has a C28 as well.

Thank you both for congrats. We have now had some time with Snilefisken, and our love is just growing  ;D

BJ: Thank you for the pm. I actually bought Snilefisken from mr. K from Son, whom has cared well for her since she arrived from Vlissingen. He has given her a new layer of gelcoat, not that long ago, but as I understood, the color is more or less original. The old gelcoat had faded a lot when he re-did it. The grey grey color on the deck is a new antislip he fitted her with quite some time ago.

And thank you for the information on the other Contest-owners in Oslo. Especially the other 28 owner may be useful in our attempt to restore her to her full glory  ;)
